The IND has launched an online application service for baby residence permits. Before the service launched people could only make an application by post. Applying online is faster than sending an application by post, and means that the applicant will receive a notification if there are any errors on the form, which can then be corrected immediately. It also means that applications can be filed at a time and place that is convenient to the applicant.

For more information on making a residence permit application for a baby online, see the IND website, which also contains information on the procedure and costs of applying.
